if you need to repeat, sometimes it's also because the useful is drowned 
in the flow and known only to the 5 people who swim in it

given the length of the discussion and its scattering, adding a link
to the first message of every thread is not very useful.
on the other hand, it was proposed that the long-term discussions should 
have a summary, also posted on tagging that could be pointed to the wiki 
or other place requiring it.
for my part I am unable to make such a summary for this subject,
I have long since lost sight of the purpose of this thread except to say 
"something is wrong"

as mentioned recently, some discussions are indigestible,
not only because of the number of messages but also because
of the lack of quote and clear/targeted comments.
and just because all but 5 participants gave up does not mean that the 
subject has progressed.
